This happened in the first over, when Mukesh Choudary got rid of Shubhman Gill for a golden duck. During the second and fourth overs, Mahesh Theekshana got rid of Vijay Shankar and Abhinav Manohar.

Rashid went crazy in the 18th over of Chris Jordan when the stand-in captain hit three sixes and a four. With 48 runs needed off the last 18 balls, Rashid went crazy. It was a good over for Gujarat because they made 25 runs.
Bravo did get rid of Rashid Khan and Alzarri Joseph in the penultimate over, but it was already too late. Miller took his team home with a ball to spare in the last over of the game.

Ambati Rayudu and Ruturaj Gaikwad led the way for CSK in an innings. The two kept the score moving. During the powerplay, GT’s pacers put the batting duo under stress. They kept them from scoring many runs.
During the 8th over of the innings, Rayudu took his time to get used to the field. On the other hand, Gaikwad played aggressively to help his team reach 50 runs. It took Gaikwad 37 balls to reach his half-century, and he smashed GT bowlers all over the field.
The pair made 68 runs together for CSK until the 12th over, which helped the team score more than 100 runs. In the 12th over, Gaikwad and Rayudu smashed Yash Dayal and scored 19 runs.
To break the partnership between Alzarri Joseph and Rayudu, he was brought back into the attack. In the 15th over, he took out the well-set Rayudu for 46 runs, leaving CSK at 124/3.
Rayudu’s wicket made it possible for Shivam Dube and Gaikwad to play together. Yash Dayal made a big difference for his team when he took out Gaikwad for 73 runs. In the 19th over of the game, Ravindra Jadeja came out to bat with Dube to keep the score moving.
They reached the 150-run mark for Chennai in that time. In the last overs of the first innings, Jadeja and Dube both made quick runs to help their team reach 169/5.
